One of soon-to-be FORMER President Barack Hussein Obama’s dubious “achievements” has been his success in vilifying our law enforcement professionals.Starting with his comment that police “acted stupidly” before knowing the facts of the arrest of black professor Henry Louis Gates in 2009, to his continuous stream of insinuating statements about race and police actions, he’s left little doubt about his true feelings.
He’s done much to stoke the flames of anger against our men and women of the Thin Blue Line, and he’s left a parting shot as one final insult.
On occasion, the lights on the White House are changed to commemorate events. In October 2013 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the White House was bathed in pink lights and in rainbow colors in June 2015 to celebrate the Supreme Court ruling that allowed same-sex couples nationwide the right to marry.
Monday was Law Enforcement Appreciation Day and you’d think that might be an opportunity to show support by turning on blue lights.But, no.
The Daily Caller reports, The White House refused a call by a Republican congressman to light the White House blue Monday for National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.).
“Obama has not agreed to do so, but has displayed lights at the White House for other groups in the past, including the LGBT community,” a spokeswoman from Republican Washington Rep. Dave Reichert’s office told The Daily Caller Sunday night.

Per WFXL, National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day was founded by the National Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) – a group formed by the surviving loved ones of officers killed in the line of duty – after the 2014 police-involved shooting in Ferguson, Missouri and the nationwide backlash by groups like Black Lives Matter.Well, luckily there’s a new sheriff in town in just a few days and this disrespect will END.
